Fire, Security, and Emergency Management Challenges for NASA's Space Program

Millions of pounds in thrust, a gigantic fire ball, tremendous roaring explosion, zero to 17,000 mph; all this in seconds/minutes.

Kennedy Space Center stands ready with a full contingent of Emergency Responders, including Fire and Emergency Medical, Security and Law Enforcement, and an Emergency Operations Center that completes the entire Emergency Management Program.
